CANON CITY - Canon City councilman Colby Katchmar is assuring his colleagues on the council that he is innocent of accusations he assaulted an elderly couple.

According to the Canon City Daily Record (http://tinyurl.com/lejepmd ), Katchmar said in a statement the issue appears to be politically motivated.

Katchmar and local artist Thomas Lockhart were arrested Thursday night on suspicion of assault and crimes against at-risk adults after a reported altercation with the couple.

Robert Martin and Margene Martin say Katchmar tried to block them from leaving a local business. Police say Margene suffered serious injuries, including a fractured hip.
